Description

Although written for the gastrointestinal pathologist, practicing gastroenterologist, and trainees in the field, Diagnostic Pathology: GI Endoscopic Correlation provides useful information to general practitioners in internal medicine and surgical pathology. With nearly 200 diagnoses —all featuring the most recent information and formatted with Amirsys® pioneered, bulleted text—this reference provides a comprehensive, atlas-like, overview of endoscopic and microscopic correlates. Thousands of endoscopic, gross, and microscopic images are extensively annotated and serve to highlight clinically and pathologically significant features of disease as well as relevant differential diagnoses. Coupled with a companion eBook, this volume will become a standard reference for all practitioners who provide care to patients with gastrointestinal diseases.
